This recipe is almost as easy as heating up a can of Campbell’s! I did not add in the Roquefort cheese because I did not have any on hand. I did add in a tsp of basil and a tsp of oregano which gave it a little kick. My husband loved it so I will definitely be making it again. Thanks for sharing!

Like my soup thicker, used 1/3 cup of flour. For a change of pace tried V8 juice instead of tomato juice. Wonderful

YUM!!!! tried another version of cream of tomato soup and it curdled, made it again following strict instructions and it still curdled. This one was so easy and SUPER delicious! I used a cup of milk and a cup of half and half instead of 3 cups of milk. NEVER going back to campbells!
